Accessing OWA hosted by a different server than SBS

    A customer has set me up with an email account that I can access from OWA.
    However, when I try to connect using IE 6 on a client computer, IE 6 thinks I
    am trying to access my SBS server even though the address that I am typing is
    an external address. I think it has to do with the proxy server settings in
    IE 6 but when I try to change it, my ISA server has a fit.

    Any suggestions?

    Just to clarify. When you say you can access from OWA, do you mean when you
    are outside that LAN? What do you see when you are at the client side and
    you enter the same address into IE as you use on the outside?

    Correct. When I am outside their LAN, I use OWA to access their Exchange
    server. They are across the country from where I am, so I have never accessed
    Exchange from within their LAN. What I didn't mention was that I can access
    their Exchange server using my laptop (not a client of my LAN) without any
    difficulties - so I know that the issue is within my LAN.

    What happens is: I can get into their mail server and I can see the number
    of unread emails in the left pane. However, it continues to ask me for the
    user name and password and then fails. I believe that SBS is trying to
    resolve to the internal LAN and not the external LAN. When I go to the
    critical errors report in SBS it shows that there are several failed attempts
    to access SBS from the client I am working from with an incorrect username
    and password.

    How do you enter the username? have you tried to use domain\username?
